WATCH: Sarah Huckabee Sanders Completely Embarrasses Reporter After He Says Trump Is “Lying” — [VIDEO]

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, completely shut down a reporter during Monday’s press briefing after he accused President Donald Trump of “lying” about an important issue.

The reporter’s question centered around two tweets the President posted.

“HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY, EVEN THOUGH THE DEMS WON’T LET IT PASS IN THE SENATE,” Trump tweeted. ‘PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY WHILE THE DEMS WANT OPEN BORDERS = CRIME. WIN!”

A few days later, the president tweeted another message.

“I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold,” the president wrote. “I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.”

“Why would the president lie about something like that?” the reporter asked.

Sanders fired back at the reporter as she provided important context behind Trump’s statements

“He didn’t,” Sanders proclaimed. “The president has talked all along; we’ve laid out the priorities and the principles that we support; that we wanted to see reflected in legislation. At the same time, the president wasn’t aggressively lobbying members because he knew that Democrats in the Senate still were unwilling to actually come to the table and focus on solutions rather than playing political games.”

She then added, “Democrats have made it abundantly clear that they don’t actually want to fix problems. … I guess for some reason they think this is a good issue for them, although it isn’t. Frankly, I think it’s outrageous that Democrats have not come to the table and tried to help fix this problem.”

The reporter did not attempt to ask a follow-up question.
